The S240 Tractor comes with a premium engine, the same as used in some Select Series X300 models
Large cleanout ports, integrated into the engine shroud, are located over the cylinder heads to allow for easy inspection and removal of any debris that may have collected there.
Premium engine oil and air filtering systems and cooling design provide increased reliability and engine life.
The 21.5-hp (16-kW) V-twin engine provides plenty of power and torque to handle tough mulching, mowing, and bagging conditions:
V-twin cylinder design for greater torque, lower vibration, and improved sound quality

CONVENIENT FUEL-FILLER OPENING
Capacity is 2.4 U.S. gal. (9.08 L)
The fuel-filler opening is conveniently located under the seat
Filling the tank without spilling is easy
A tethered fuel tank cap is more convenient

THE 42-IN. (107-CM) ACCEL DEEP (42A) MOWER DECK CUTS CLEAN AND IS VERSATILE
The 42-in. (107-cm) Accel Deep Mower Deck is a stamped-steel, deep, flat-top design that delivers excellent cut quality, productivity, cleanliness, durability, and versatility. Optimal performance and dispersion of clippings is provided, even at faster mowing speeds or in tall grass:
4.97-in. (12.6-cm) depth throughout the entire deck shell for optimum mowing, mulching, and bagging performance
Optional MulchControl system provides superior mulching performance and versatility
Stamped-steel design eliminates sharp edges and corners where material can build up and diminish mowing performance
Mower deck suspended from the vehicle for a smooth and level cut
Adjustable mower wheels, positioned just above ground level, help reduce scalping
0.25-in. (6.4-mm) cut-height increments allow the mower to be set at the desired cut height
Compatible with efficient 6.5-bu (229-L) two-bag material collection system

48-IN. (122-cm) ACCEL DEEP (48A) MOWER DECK CUTS CLEAN AND IS VERSATILE
The 48-in. (122-cm) Accel Deep Mower Deck is a stamped-steel, deep, flat-top design that delivers excellent cut quality, productivity, cleanliness, durability, and versatility. Optimal performance and dispersion of clippings is provided, even at faster mowing speeds or in tall grass:
4.83-in. (12.3-cm) depth throughout the entire deck shell allows for optimum mowing, mulching, and bagging performance.
Optional MulchControl system provides superior mulching performance and versatility.
Stamped-steel design eliminates sharp edges and corners where material can build up and diminish mowing performance.
Mower deck is suspended from the vehicle for a smooth and level cut.
Adjustable mower wheels positioned just above ground level help reduce scalping.
0.25-in. (6.4-mm) cut-height increments allow mower to be set at the desired cut height
Compatible with high-performance Power Flow material collection system

EXCELLENT CUT QUALITY
Deep mower-deck stamping gives excellent cut quality. It allows the cut and suspended material room to exit the deck without getting recut:
Reducing the amount of recutting enables more power to be used to cut incoming grass, which greatly improves mower capacity.
Helps maintain excellent cut quality at faster mowing speeds
Clean flow of material out of discharge area prevents cut material from interfering with cutting the incoming grass, making it possible for the blades to cut incoming material cleanly.
Even in mulching mode, cut evenness is improved compared to other designs because the additional depth allows for continuous circulation, optimal recutting, and an even distribution of clippings.

PRODUCTIVITY - GETS THE JOB DONE FAST
Deep mower-deck stamping gives high productivity, which gets the job done fast. It allows the cut and suspended material room to exit the deck quickly, reducing the amount of recutting so more power is available to process incoming grass:
Greatly improves mowers capacity to maintain excellent mowing performance in difficult mowing conditions and at higher speeds
Large discharge opening is both high and wide to handle more material:
Gives a smooth, even discharge of clippings at all mowing speeds
Reduces the chance of plugging, especially important when operating in wet, thick, or dense grass and when bagging
Cut-and-throw chute has a large, optimized inlet which aids in collecting material by using airflow from the large deck opening

CLEANLINESS - FOR THE MOWER AND THE OPERATOR
The flat-top shape of the deck stamping is optimal for keeping itself and the operator clean:
There are few places to catch and hold material on top and underneath the deck.
Top of deck stays cleaner, reducing time and effort needed for cleaning and service
Underside of deck is self-cleaning to maintain optimum performance without buildup of material to interfere with the flow of air and clippings
Less need to clean and remove buildup of material from underside deck
The depth of the Accel Deep mower deck minimizes the amount of material that escapes from the front of the deck
Limited amount of material to drift onto the operator and mower deck
Even flow of material discharged out the chute, less recutting results in larger pieces that are less likely to end up on the operator
Mulching prevents the discharge of material completely and MulchControl makes mulching a practical solution for most mowing situations.
Cleaning a mower deck, both top and bottom, is one of the most frequent maintenance activities:
The flat-top design reduces places for material to build up and makes material that does collect easy to remove.

SUPERIOR DURABILITY IS DESIGNED IN
The 42A Mower Deck has strong spindle pockets, to keep the blades aligned, even after years of tough service:
Ribs in the deck shell add strength where it is needed.
The 42A has a 16 percent heavier overall weight than the Edge Xtra 42-in. (107-cm) Mower Deck.

The 48A Mower Deck has strong spindle pockets, to keep the blades aligned, even after years of tough service:
Stamped from strong 10-gauge, 0.135-in. (3.4-mm) steel
Ribs in the deck shell add strength where it is needed.
Mower wheels are double captured:
Provides greater strength and durability for longer, trouble-free life.
Single-bolt adjustment makes setting wheels to the correct height for the cutting height quick and easy.
Low-tension belt-drive design reduces the side load on the engines lower bearing and mower deck bearings for longer life.
Rolled outer edge of the deck provides extra strength and protection.
Dual-stage E-coat and powder-paint coatings provide extra protection

MOWER BLADES
High-lift bagging blades are included with the bagger chute. They provide optimum performance when bagging in difficult conditions, such as when the grass is moist, dense, or long:
High-lift bagging blades also work well when side discharging material.
Mulching blades are included with the optional MulchControl system. They can be used for mulching, side discharging, and bagging in most conditions.
Side-discharge blades can be used with the Power Flow system when bagging.
Mulching blades are included with the optional MulchControl attachment. They can be used for mulching, side discharging, and bagging.

VERSATILITY - EASY TO CHANGE BETWEEN SIDE DISCHARGE, MULCH, AND BAGGING MODES
The 42A & 48A Mower Deck is designed for maximum versatility, providing the greatest ease in changing from one mower discharge mode to another:
With an optional MulchControl system installed (along with the special mulching blades), changing from side discharging to mulching or vice versa is done with the simple flip of a lever or push of an electric switch.
The cut-and-throw rear bagger can be used with MulchControl by removing the rear MulchControl baffle (A) before installing the bagger chute. The baffle is held in place with two carriage bolts. To return to mulching, the chute needs to be removed and the baffle replaced.

MULCHCONTROL SYSTEM PROVIDES SUPERIOR MULCHING PERFORMANCE AND RAPID CONVERSION
A Kanzaki Tuff Torq hydrostatic transmission gives an infinite choice of speeds and makes changing the direction of travel easy.
Side-by-side foot pedals control the speed and direction of travel:
Automotive-type accelerator controls ensure easy operation.
The operator can change direction without lifting foot off the platform.
A large pedal surface gives superior operator comfort.

Appropriate transmissions are used in each tractor model, depending on rear tire size and tractor performance requirements, to ensure excellent performance and reliability:

Tuff Torq TLT200 S220
Tuff Torq K46 S240

SNOW REMOVAL IS A STRENGTH OF LAWN TRACTORS

Equipment available for snow removal includes:
44-in. (112-cm) Snow Blower
46-in. (117-cm) Front Blade
Tire chains or TerraGrip traction belts
Weather enclosure
Weights

The steering wheel is positioned and angled to give the operator plenty of room and steering comfort.
The seat is positioned to provide the most comfortable operator position.
The wide footrest makes it easier to step over the mower deck while entering or exiting the seat.
Debris-removing channels help keep the footrest area clean and dry.

COMFORTABLE SEAT
